Art Exhibit @ the Festival: Risky Women: Wreaking Havoc!
A sassy, sexy, risky show of female artists who push the boundaries of being.
“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!” Hunter S. Thompson
So many of us are taught to play it safe, look and act a certain way, to maintain control, to strive to be something resembling “normal”. Life as a woman on this planet really isn’t that onedimensional, now is it? And maybe for some of us, it never was. One of the definitions of Havoc is to destroy or devastate. Four female artists take a look at the inner and outer worlds of femininity, sexuality, spirituality, and create work that is, in some way, risky. We are walking the edge, acting impulsively or spontaneously, and sometimes flying entirely out of control. These four artists are wreaking havoc with our preconceived notions of normal, confiding in our desires, inspiring confessions and creative outbursts…and showing us what it looks like to take risks & push the boundaries of being.
